“Happy Monday! For a lot of us the world has changed very profoundly. Health became more important than work, science more important then social media and we are all surviving instead of living,” Floor wrote.
“I’m writing to you while lying in bed with a fever. I’ve been sick since last week’s Tuesday and I am in quarantine now in our own guest cabin (which we fortunately have). I should have been on a flight today for tomorrow’s show. We all should have been somewhere else. I am grateful that I have a strong body that can fight a virus (whether I am battling Corona or another virus) I am ok! I hope you are ok too and if you are sick, that you feel better soon!
“Please avoid gathering with others, please stay at home as much as you can! Listen carefully to the official recommendations and follow the news from your governments, don’t read fake news online! Enjoy a beam of sunlight or a good book and know this all will be over soon!
“I hope we come out better, stronger, more aware and with deeper love for (all) life!
